“Night”: Michal Rovner’s New Body of Work at the Pace Gallery
Night, Rovner’s new solo show, will be radically different from the artist’s previous exhibitions. Rovner’s encounters with darkness generate nocturnal images, capturing moments that are immersed in shadows. The works reverberate an unfamiliar dimension, a sense of fear and alertness, primal powers and the night within us.
Rovner’s previous bodies of work, which span multiple forms of media, have defined a new and evocative language of abstraction. Her non-narrative video and multi-screen moving-image works, broadly addressing themes of history, humanity and time, depict unidentifiable human figures in movement within a landscape. She records and erases visual information, obscuring specifics of place or real-life situations through gestural, painterly qualities. Her projections on stone and paper reference the historical realm through their material surfaces, and continue these investigations into the human condition.
